The Profane & The Hellish - Elf Lair Games Veterans of the Supernatural Wars Rpg By Jason Vey & Tomothy Brannan Session Report & Monster Workshop Now With More Kasimir Urbanski's "The Invisible College" rpg

" If you examine the highest poetry in the light of common sense, you can only say that it is rubbish; and in actual fact you cannot so examine it at all, because there is something in poetry which is not in the words themselves, which is not in the images suggested by the words 'O windy star blown sideways up the sky!' True poetry is itself a magic spell which is a key to the ineffable.

This post is gonna pick right back up where this blog post ended. Today we're gonna rewind the clock back a bit. Because we got together last night & began to discuss B/X OSR rpg options & resources. 
Why?! Because we hadn't examined one or two B/X occult mega resources for 'Veterans of the Supernatural Wars Rpg' by Jason Vey & Timothy Brannan. Namely Kasimir Urbanski's   "The Invisible College" rpg from Amazon. You can read my review of 'The Invisible Colllege' here. 

Right off the bat this blog post is made with the following warning. I don't care about any of the rpg designer's political views or camps. Timothy Brannan over the years on his 'Otherside  blog' has reviewed lots & lots of  Kasimir Urbanski's rpg titles & vice versa. So let's dive right back in. 

"Indubitably, magic is one of the subtlest and most difficult of the sciences and arts. There is more opportunity for errors of comprehension, judgment and practice than in any other branch of physics."

 So lets get back to the fact that 'the Invisible College's occult & mundane forces  may be the only thing standing between our normal reality & infernal Hell on Earth. I'm not talking Harry Potter here but the promise of the Golden Dawn realized! The idea that visitors from one universe might be coming to pollute our own during the Eighties! The Sixties occult awakening led to the Seventies Supernatural Cold War. But both Russia & America realized that each other wasn't the true enemy here. The powers that be of the Invisible College are minor players in the B/X multiverse here. 

The Invisible Coll├Ęge offers full on B/X style occult demons. So let's go with that for a moment. These are scouts straight out of the multiverse probing for weakness within the fabric of our lower vibrational quantum reality. International governments have been using these demons & evils as subtle  weapons for decades. 
World of Darkness?! Cthulhu?! No this is far more dangerous stuff here. These demonic forces from the Plane Prime next door are weapons of mass deception of the highest caliber. 
But is there room enough on the table top for both 'Veterans of the Supernatural Wars Rpg' by Jason Vey & Timothy Brannan & Kasimir Urbanski's   "The Invisible College" rpg  at the table top?! 
Yes & in point of fact here's my suggestion for the cults that are trying to bring about the destruction of the Earth! Grab a copy of Kevin Crawford's  Silent Legions rpg in addition! 

Why?! Because the real enemy who'd be trying to wreck the world as we know it would be the supernatural  cells & cults springing up in board rooms & back alleyways across planet Earth in the Eighties. 

Think about it?! Your neighbors, your friends, relatives, & strangers might all be veying for power across your home town. The real issue? What if they get it? What if that power comes from a whole other universe whose supernatural cancer wants to spread?! Would the cure already be in place?! That's where 'Veterans of the Supernatural Wars Rpg' by Jason Vey & Timothy Brannan comes in. 
With these three powerhouse games you as the DM can build ANY supernaturally oriented campaign from the ground up! This will have years of miliage within it! Why?! Because essentially this is all OSR B/X powered supernatural & occult goodness. You can & add or subtract as needed. 

Where does using Rafael Chandler 's Demonic Tome 'a pay what you want title'  as the basis for a Horror Pulp style invasion of Hell on Earth come into play?! Soon but let's take this slowly because we're in the middle of Hell folks!
